Liza is back! And with Filip and Chris, the three of them discuss four important Asian American YA books that span three decades: Marie G. Lee's "Finding My Voice" and "If It Hadn't Been For Yoon Jun," Gene Luen Yang's "American Born Chinese," and Randy Ribay's "Patron Saints of Nothing." Issues discussed include how to read older works in the context of their time and whether POC writers are automatically qualified to write characters of their own race.
